Enter The Forbidden Galaxy Of Cheesecake Art [NSFW]

Two beautiful adventurers stalk the steam-tunnels of Kraang, armed only with pulse-lasers and wearing their protective fishnet stockings and bustiers. The New York Pin-Up Club turned its lusty eye to science-fiction recently, and we've got some of the loveliest pics.

According to organizer and photographer Brandon Herman, the pin-up club met last month for a marathon six-hour photo shoot (not including the time it took to build the set). Around ten models and between 30 and 40 photographers took part, which was more photographers than usual, and way more than Herman ever expected to show up. The photographers and models broke up into smaller groups, and tried to make sure every photographer worked with every model.

Some of the shoot's highlights include Herman's assistant organizer and super popular model, Sin Dee, body-painted to look like a cute alien. Also, make-up artist and sometime model Jessica Jade Jacob had built a robot for an art competition at Carnegie Mellon University. The availability of her robot actually inspired Herman and friends to do a science-fiction theme night, and Jacob included some photos from the shoot in her presentation at CMU, which won some awards there.

Here are some of our favorites. Warning, a couple of the body-painted pics are NSFW:

We asked Herman what classic science fiction films inspired the shoot, and he said:

Our biggest influence was no one film in particular; it was more our impression of those cheesy 50s films in general. For research, I did watch a few oldies, including one called The Phantom Empire, which featured Gene Autry (the "singing cowboy") trying to save his ranch from the advanced race of beings living below it in an underground metropolis. But I'm a huge fan of sci-fi so i'm already very familiar with the style of things like Buck Rogers, Flash Gordon, Barbarella, Captain Video, Ed Wood, etc.

He adds that they'll probably do another science fiction photoshoot in a year or 18 months. Meanwhile, they have some other incredible shoots planned. "Soon we will be out at the American Airpower Museum where our models can pose with vintage WWII aircraft in a huge hangar on a working runway. We went there last summer and it was a HUGE hit." There may be some video from the science fiction shoot going up on Youtube, and we'll be sure to post it when it's available. [NY Pinup Club]
